What's Magny Cours like these days? Never a great circuit but compared to the monstrosity that is Paul Ricard...

ApexTurtle is a back marker
To me a circuit is about the corners and the layout, but apparently that's a little old fashioned

The old fashioned Bentley Boys were always keen on making sure there were good places to dine near a circuit.

Most major American road courses — Barber, Laguna Seca, Lime Rock, Mid-Ohio, Portland, Road-America, Road Atlanta, Sebring, Sonoma, VIR, Watkins Glen — in fact do currently hold FIA licenses. It's that they're at the Grade 2 level. If you mean that they haven't been upgraded to meet current FIA Grade 1 standards — which is required to hold a F1 race — then you are correct.

That said, there is one thing that needs to be worked on. Per S365:

Bookmark that quote — it tells us a lot about what the ACO/WEC doesn't do well and the challenges it faces going forward.

Edited to add: Atherton's complaint is especially interesting given the WEC's strong preference for Grade 1 tracks and all the corporate suites and such that typically go along with hosting F1.
WEC's biggest sponsor, and the one that spends the most on activation, is Michelin.

Perhaps Atherton doesn't realise that they sponsor things other than the Pilot Challenge?

Herewith my contribution to the Tenthers' Sebring WEC photo collection:

https://bit.ly/2WrsQuW

My usual caveats:

- I'm a fan with a camera, not an expert photographer like others we are lucky to have on the forum
- I take a lot of photos so this is a big album
- All pics are cropped and resized but otherwise unedited

This was my first time at Sebring so inevitably I hadn't yet learned the best spots/angles. It always takes a few visits to learn small details like whether to go high or low in a stand, interesting backdrops etc. My pictures from the IMSA race the next day (which I am now editing) are noticeably better just as a result of having taken this album's worth first.

I hope you enjoy!
